Travel to and from School

Bus Travel

The school has been advised by Murphy Buses that all of its drivers will be compliant with the Public Health Order on vaccinations.

Mask wearing is compulsory for students over 12 who ride the school bus and strongly encouraged for all other students.

At the start of the day, students arriving by bus will be checked as they arrive for contact tracing purposes and staff will observe students on arrival checking for symptoms and ask those presenting as unwell to go to the sickbay where the office staff will arrange for parents and caregivers to come and pick up. Please note, this does not mean staff will be taking students' temperatures.

At the end of the day, all bus students in each class will all come over to the bus area together with the L@H teacher. They will then stand in designated, physically distanced spots that will prevent intermingling of class groups.

Once students are on the bus, the school has no ability to keep students separated.

Parents dropping off students

No students are to be dropped before 8:15 a.m.

The Batty Rd carpark will be closed off and will become a drive-through drop-off zone. Staff members will be in the carpark to greet the students in each car as it arrives and assist them get out of the car if required. Parents are to remain in the car.

Once out of the car students will sanitise their hands before entering the school grounds and then go to their classroom where they will be greeted by their Face to Face teacher. To keep students in each class separated, no students will be allowed to play in the playground before school.

Parents collecting students

All students must be picked up by 2:45 p.m.

At the end of the day F2F teachers will bring their class to a designated place on the bottom field by 2:30 p.m. ensuring that students from different classes do not intermingle. From 2:30 p.m. parents will drive in through the bottom gate, drive around the field in a clockwise direction (turning left as they come in the gate) to collect their child from the designated spots. Parents must remain in their car.

Two staff members in Hi-Viz vests will be on the gate to direct traffic and staff will be in Hi-Viz vests where each class is stationed.

Should you know that you are going to be late arriving for pick up, please call the office so your child's teachers can be informed.
